Joan said ‘this annual afternoon tea on Civic Day has become a popular and important part of our year. The staff at the Art Deco Cafe put on an excellent tea and we also took the opportunity to present the Civic Trust’s annual ‘Street of the Year’ award.’

The award was won by Cherry Tree Gardens and was nominated by Cllr Paula Burdess. A specially made sign will go up on the street. The local councillors were also given an inscribed Rose Bowl to keep for a year. The late councillor Norman Hardy gave the Rose Bowl to the Civic Trust when he was Mayor in order to encourage councillors to nominate the best kept street in their own wards.

‘We all enjoyed a lovely event’, Joan said, ‘when we came together to celebrate our civic pride in Blackpool.’
